Why stop_cmd=: in /etc/rc.d/pccard ?

2003-10-31 Thread Jan . Stary
Hi all,

why does /etc/rc.d/pccard say stop_cmd=: in CURRENT?
This obviously does not 'stop' pccardd. As a consequence,
'/etc/rc.d/pccard restart' gives you two pccardd's running.

Thanks

Jan

Re: openssh in 4.9

I've read the advisory. It states a couple of workarounds (which I
enabled at the time anyway) and also states that the problem is
rectified in -STABLE beyond a certain date.

However, looking at the openssh advisory's, the only fix is to be
running a version 3.7.1p1 or later. So I'm confused. Have the FreeBSD
team backported these fixes into 3.5.1 ? 

One of my problems is that some of my clients occasionally have 3rd
parties perform penetration testing on our servers. I need an
explanation for when the 3rd party comes back and says that I am running
a vulnerable ssh.

Yes, that's why the FreeBSD advisory says the problem was rectified in

Compare the version string to an unpatched openssh version...they are

Firewall for VoIP box

2003-10-31 Thread Dmitry Mishchenko
Hello,

We have the following configuration: FreeBSD router with 2 network cards.
- first card has a real IP and connected to internet (lets say 
65.1.1.1). There is a  ipfw firewall which control traffic to this card.
- second card has another real IP (lets say 65.1.1.2) and connected to 
Quintum VoIP box.

VoIP box has also its own real IP (lets say 65.1.1.3).

How should firewall be configured for card #2 for allowing VoIP traffic?
What ports should be open for normal VoIP work?
Thanks,

There is that a port that handels this for you. It called portupgrade

Unable to start NFS server from FreeBSD Jail environment.

Hi everybody,

I am relatively new to FreeBSD, so please pardon me
if this question is not appropriate for this mailing

environments.

I am unable start an NFS server from within a

to allow sshd and telnet, but I am unable to export
file systems from the jail.

My logs and configuration are as follows:

CONFIGURATION:

interface, FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE

Jail Environment: Runs on an independent hard disk,
mounted by the Parent, has network connectivity
(network interface is aliased from Parent's
interface),
successfully runs sshd. 

Here is an 'rpcinfo -p' done on the jail:

1000241   tcp   1020  status

Here is the Jail's  /etc/exports file:
/usr-alldirsleaningtower

I would would appreciate any advice/pointers in this 
regard.

Thank you,

Prashant

what happens when connection is lost ?

2003-10-31 Thread M.D. DeWar
Hello,
If I am logged in on a FreeBSD machine with ssh.
And doing say a ./configure or make  and I lose connection does that stop
what I was doing ?

In general, yes-- what happens is that a broken connection results in a 
hangup (HUP) signal being sent to the process group containing ssh, 
your shell, and whatever commands might have been running.

data get corrupted etc ?
Generally not.  The point of the HUP signal is to allow processes to 
shut down cleanly.  See man nohup, man signal

Also consider installing screen from packages/ports.
screen will keep running if youy lose your connections allowing you to
reconnect to it when you reconnect.

-CURRENT panic: lockmgr locking against myself

2003-10-31 Thread Robert Huff

One of my boxes, running:

FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT #0: Tue Oct 21 23:17:38 EDT 2003

froze, then paniced recently.  While I was not able to get to
the debugger, I did see

lockmgr: locking against myself

flash by on the screen.
A little bit of research takes me to kern/44585 ... but
involved threading, about which I am ignorant but don't think I'm
doing much/any of.  It's also marked closed at least a week before
my kernel build.  (I update the source tree nightly.)
A core dump - 500mb+ - is available.  
Not having experience with dumps, where do I go from here?

 Hi Drew,

 This should find all files created or modified on 25th October:

 find / -mtime 6 -ls -o -ctime 6 -ls

 (As today is 31st October which is 6 days after 25th.  You may need to
 widen your search a little with a seperate search with 7 as the paramter
 as 6 may not catch files that were created over 6 * 24 hours ago (but were
 still on the 25th); not sure about that).

Thank you for your reply.  I tried your suggestion and it seems to get what
I want.  However there are so many little files that I thought I'd modify
the command to:

find /usr \( -mtime 6 -ls -size 100 \) -o \( -ctime 6 -ls -size 100
\) -print

If I understand the '-size' primary correctly, this means I would find files
that are '100 512-byte blocks' in size or '50k'.  Yet I still get output
like this:

7621552 -r--r--r--1 root wheel 928 Oct
25 15:12 /usr/local/man/man3/pcre_compile.3.gz

7621552 -r--r--r--1 root wheel 928 Oct
25 15:12 /usr/local/man/man3/pcre_compile.3.gz

(And why is this file listed twice, anyway?)  So I guess my question is how
can I find files created or modified on Oct. 25 and are larger than size?

Thanks for any help.  This is really confusing to me.

Drew

Re: ICMP being blocked by ATT

2003-10-31 Thread Derek Zeanah

I was chatting with our internet provider who gets their feed from ATT,
he notified me that they are blocking all ICMP protocols.
By gosh by golly, I can't ping, tracert, nothing...  Is this new?
Shall I complain?
I'm not sure you'll be able to do much.

You remember that last batch of Microsoft RPC worms?  There was another 
that followed it up, supposedly designed to fix the vulnerability, but 
that's questionable.  Anyway, this follow-up (called Welchia, among 
other things) has a nasty habit of causing pingstorms.  It wants to ping 
the entire IP address space sequentially, from what I can tell, looking 
for new hosts to try and infect.

I've seen one infected machine consume so much bandwidth that no-one 
else could access the T1, going through each IP sequentially...

Anyway, my ISP (Megapath) shut off ICMP traffic temporarily to make the 
network usable gain; now tracert's coming from outside the network 
behave as advertized, but anything initiated within the network gets 
stomped.  ATT is probably doing the same, and I doubt they'll change 
anything until Welchia runs its course.

Video crash leaving X in 4.9-RELEASE

2003-10-31 Thread Chris Readle
Has anyone else seen this?

I've got an issue where my video goes totally fubar on me, that is to say
becomes entirely scrambled when leaving X after upgrading to 4.9.  This
happens with both KDE and WindowMaker.

The really funny thing is, is that the X server seems to exit normally,
with nothing in the log (that I can recall) and when I ssh in from another
computer the only thing running on the other tty is bash.

I'm running a GeForce FX5900 Ultra using the nvidia driver.  Has anyone
seen this one?

chris

P.S. I'd put up uname and all the log info, but my friggin IP changed and
I can't ssh into my system from here to get it.  If needed, I will put
them up this evening.

Machine locks in Probing devices... (4.9-RELEASE)

2003-10-31 Thread Carlos A. Carnero Delgado
Hello,

I'm installing 4.9-RELEASE into a (marginally) older Compaq computer
(Presario 7000 series, Pentium III 1GHz). Well, booting off the CD doesn't
work (a 4.8-RELEASE disc does); so I had to go with the floppy method.

Way after the MFS is loaded, this machine seems to lock up in the Probing
devices phase. How much time does that take?

Is there a way for me to see what's locking up the probing?

Best regards,
Carlos.

You don't mention whether you're trying to get it to work on the console
or in X. You'll need to specify which kind of mouse you had before and
what the Pointers section in your XF86Config says followed by what kind
of mouse the new one is. USB? PS/2? Chances are the mouse will indeed
work in FreeBSD, but you need to provide more info before anyone can
give you particularly helpful advice.

Good luck,

Adaptec 29160N errors

2003-10-31 Thread whizkid
Hi all,
I have a AMD ThunderBird 1 gig machine on a Abit KT7A-Raid MB.  When I
install my Adaptec 29160N Ultra 160 scsi card, and try to do any
writing to a DDS2 tape drive, I get a screen full of Ahc0 - Parity
error then I get another error stating that the card is *Reporting*
the errors and not *Generating* the errors, and that parity checking
will be disabled.
I have tried 2 different cards in 3 PCI slots, and a hand full of
different internal and external SCSI cables and terminators.  The
cards have the latest 3.10.0.0 Bios and the MB also has the latest and
greatest bios. I have also tried a few different scsi backup drives.
Finally I installed a Adaptec AHA-2940 card, and no errors. I am
currently running freeBSD 5.1-Current.

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide me.

Re: SNMP help

2003-10-31 Thread Richard Coleman
After installing the net-snmp port, add snmpd_enable=YES to your 
/etc/rc.conf.  Then the snmpd daemon will start upon next boot (startup 
script should be in /usr/local/etc/rc.d).  Then do your standard 
Openview snmp discovery for this machine.  That should be enough to get 
you started.  If you want to change the data reported, you will need to 
do some reading at that point to learn how to extend the MIB.  The 
O'reilly book on snmp is logical place to start for this.

Often, you will need to create the gifx interface manually. Just run an
ifconfig gif0 create before you do your gifconfig entry.

Re: Adaptec 29160N errors

2003-10-31 Thread whizkid
 The controller is complaining that some device in your system is
 generating
 PCI transactions that cannot be safely decoded because they contain parity
 errors.  Just moving the 160 card won't make this situation go away.  You
 need to find the source of these errors.  Otherwise, you might as well
 live with the message in your dmesg log and go on with life.


At the time of the errors there was and still is only 1 device on the
controller.  I have tried 2 different devices 1 internal 1 external as
well as a handful of different cables.

 Again, this has nothing to do with the SCSI controller, the devices
 attached to it, or anything SCSI specific.  Some other PCI device is
 causing the problem.


the only other PCI device in the machine is the NIC.


 The BIOS for this card may be configuring it to ignore PCI parity
 errors.


That was my guess as well.  The 29160N has parity set to Auto, the
AHA-2940 has no such option.  But I have read about this issue and the
29160N cards with any NIX system, or some BSD system.  Most of the issues
were resolved by moving the card from one PCI slot to another.  My MAIN
concern is that the card controlls my Tape Backup Drive sa0... The last
thing I want to have happen is all my data on the tapes be corrupt and/or
un-Readable due to the parity errors

Re: Silent boot?

2003-10-31 Thread Mike Hogsett

 Anyone know whether it'd be possible to cleanly disable printing the
 kernel boot messages (the bold white text)?  Meaning, short of
 commenting out the code that prints this, is there any way?

If you dont mind **NOT** having a console **AT ALL** you can comment out
the system console device (see below) in the kernel config and
rebuild/install a new kernel.

From /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC : 
...
device  sc0 at isa? flags 0x100
...

Advantage : no kernel message on console (in fact, no console! Doh!)
Disadvantage : makes single user mode difficult at best :P

For starters most databases don't have clients in the sense of a program
to connect to use and use/changed/play with the data. Most SQL databases
such as PostgreSQL Serve requests to clients. Clients usually come as
custom programs done for a particular purpose or administrative types of
programs that among other things allow you to interact with the database
and it's data.

What I believe others where trying to point you to are the ODBC drivers.
Basically a series of programs that let yet other programs talk to the
database.

I would recommend you look into PHP as to not have to worry about the
clients.

Are you planning on doing this syste/database  yourself? Are you familiar
with doing programs?

There are different ways you could go about this, just let us know your
background so we can further comment.

For instance if only one user was to update the data and it would be read
only for the rest you could get an administration program for PostgreSQL
(and there are several both free and commercial) and manually enter the
data. For the output to the users I would still recommend PHP (a
programming language which would not be all that difficult for you to
pickup if you have done some programming).

Re: Help With 'find' Syntax

2003-10-31 Thread David Carter-Hitchin
Hi Drew,

Find is one of those classic commands for confusing people.  One just gets
used to it over time.  The behaviour of find varies significantly with
different unixes under different shells.

Which shell are you using?

Under bash this command does what you want:

find / -mtime 7 -size +1024c -ls -o -ctime 7 -size +1024c -ls

the sense here is:

find / (-mtime 7 -size +1024c -ls) -o (-ctime 7 -size +1024c -ls)

meaning find (i.e. examine all files) from / and either

a) print (-ls) files modified exactly 7 days old and greater than size
1024 chars (bytes).

or (-o)

b) print (-ls) files whose inode creation times are exactly 7 days old and
greater than size 1024 chars.

If neither a) nor b) are true for a file found under / then it is silently
ignored.  

You may find the following note from man find helpful:

# All primaries which take a numeric argument allow the number to be pre-
# ceded by a plus sign (``+'') or a minus sign (``-'').  A preceding plus
# sign means ``more than n'', a preceding minus sign means ``less than n''
# and neither means ``exactly n''.

So that is why I put a + in from of 1024 - to find files over 1024 bytes
(c).

So in your example below:

 find /usr \( -mtime 6 -ls -size 100 \) -o \( -ctime 6 -ls -size 100
 \) -print

You are trying to find files that are exactly 100 512k blocks in
size. Admittedly the files you found were not of this size and I don't
know why they were found - I can replicate this on my machine here, but I
don't know why - perhaps it is the file allocation.  This is why I chose
1024c instead of block size.

 (And why is this file listed twice, anyway?)

Perhaps because there was a symbolic link pointing to it (as shown by the
'2' before the permissions).

HTH,
David

  Hi Drew,
 
  This should find all files created or modified on 25th October:
 
  find / -mtime 6 -ls -o -ctime 6 -ls
 
  (As today is 31st October which is 6 days after 25th.  You may need to
  widen your search a little with a seperate search with 7 as the paramter
  as 6 may not catch files that were created over 6 * 24 hours ago (but were
  still on the 25th); not sure about that).
 
 Thank you for your reply.  I tried your suggestion and it seems to get what
 I want.  However there are so many little files that I thought I'd modify
 the command to:
 
 find /usr \( -mtime 6 -ls -size 100 \) -o \( -ctime 6 -ls -size 100
 \) -print
 
 If I understand the '-size' primary correctly, this means I would find files
 that are '100 512-byte blocks' in size or '50k'.  Yet I still get output
 like this:
 
 7621552 -r--r--r--1 root wheel 928 Oct
 25 15:12 /usr/local/man/man3/pcre_compile.3.gz
 
 7621552 -r--r--r--1 root wheel 928 Oct
 25 15:12 /usr/local/man/man3/pcre_compile.3.gz
 
 (And why is this file listed twice, anyway?)  So I guess my question is how
 can I find files created or modified on Oct. 25 and are larger than size?
 
 Thanks for any help.  This is really confusing to me.

How to get the best results from FreeBSD questions.
===

Last update $Date: 2003/03/09 22:09:31 $

This is a regular posting to the FreeBSD questions mailing list.  If
you got it in answer to a message you sent, it means that the sender
thinks that at least one of the following things was wrong with your
message:

- You left out a subject line, or the subject line was not appropriate.
- You formatted it in such a way that it was difficult to read.
- You asked more than one unrelated question in one message.
- You sent out a message with an incorrect date, time or time zone.
- You sent out the same message more than once.
- You sent an 'unsubscribe' message to FreeBSD-questions.

If you have done any of these things, there is a good chance that you
will get more than one copy of this message from different people.
Read on, and your next message will be more successful.

This document is also available on the web at
http://www.lemis.com/questions.html.

Contents:

I:Introduction
II:   How to unsubscribe from FreeBSD-questions
III:  Should I ask -questions, -newbies or -hackers?
IV:   How to submit a question to FreeBSD-questions
V:How to answer a question to FreeBSD-questions

I: Introduction
===

This is a regular posting aimed to help both those seeking advice from
FreeBSD-questions (the newcomers), and also those who answer the
questions (the hackers).

   Note that the term hacker has nothing to do with breaking
   into other people's computers.  The correct term for the latter
   activity is cracker, but the popular press hasn't found out
   yet.  The FreeBSD hackers disapprove strongly of cracking
   security, and have nothing to do with it.

In the past, there has been some friction which stems from the
different viewpoints of the two groups.  The newcomers accused the
hackers of being arrogant, stuck-up, and unhelpful, while the hackers
accused the newcomers of being stupid, unable to read plain English,
and expecting everything to be handed to them on a silver platter.  Of
course, there's an element of truth in both these claims, but for the
most part these viewpoints come from a sense of frustration.

In this document, I'd like to do something to relieve this frustration
and help everybody get better results from FreeBSD-questions.  In the
following section, I recommend how to submit a question; after that,
we'll look at how to answer one.

II:  How to unsubscribe from FreeBSD-questions
==

When you subscribed to FreeBSD-questions, you got a welcome message
from [EMAIL PROTECTED]  In this message, amongst other things, it
told you how to unsubscribe.  Here's a typical message:

  Welcome to the freebsd-questions mailing list!

  If you ever want to remove yourself from this mailing list,
  you can send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with the following command
  in the body of your email message:

  unsubscribe freebsd-questions Greg Lehey [EMAIL PROTECTED]

  Here's the general information for the list you've
  subscribed to, in case you don't already have it:

  FREEBSD-QUESTIONS   User questions
  This is the mailing list for questions about FreeBSD.  You should not
  send how to questions to the technical lists unless you consider the
  question to be pretty technical.

Normally, unsubscribing is even simpler than the message suggests: you
don't need to specify your mail ID unless it is different from the one
which you specified when you subscribed.

If Majordomo replies and tells you (incorrectly) that you're not on
the list, this may mean one of two things:

  1.  You have changed your mail ID since you subscribed.  That's where
  keeping the original message from majordomo comes in handy.  For
  example, the sample message above shows my mail ID as
  [EMAIL PROTECTED]  Since then, I have changed it to
  [EMAIL PROTECTED]  If I were to try to remove [EMAIL PROTECTED] from
  the list, it would fail: I would have to specify the name with
  which I joined.

  2.  You're subscribed to a mailing list which is subscribed to
  FreeBSD-questions.  If that's the case, you'll have to figure out
  which one it is and get your name taken off that one.  If you're
  not sure which one it might be, check the headers of the
  messages you receive from freebsd-questions: maybe there's a
  clue there.

If you've done all this, and you still can't figure out what's going
on, send a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED], and he will sort things
out for you.  Don't send a message to FreeBSD-questions: they can't
help you.

III: Should I ask -questions, -newbies or -hackers?
===

Two mailing lists handle general questions about FreeBSD,
FreeBSD-questions and FreeBSD-hackers.  In addition, the
FreeBSD-newbies list caters 

The Complete FreeBSD: errata and addenda

2003-10-31 Thread Greg Lehey
The trouble with books is that you can't update them the way you can a web page
or any other online documentation.  The result is that most leading edge
computer books are out of date almost before they are printed.  Unfortunately,
The Complete FreeBSD, published by O'Reilly, is no exception.  Inevitably, a
number of bugs and changes have surfaced.

The Complete FreeBSD has been through a total of five editions, including its
predecessor Installing and Running FreeBSD.  Two of these have been reprinted
with corrections.  I maintain a series of errata pages.  Start at
http://www.lemis.com/errata-4.html to find out how to get the errata
information.

Have you found a problem with the book, or maybe something confusing?  Please
let me know: I'm constantly updating it.

fine in Linux, which is why I thought it might be a more common BSD 
problem and one with perhaps a common answer.  If not, I'll have to 
try some other things.  Is /usr/include/netinet6/in6.h something 
generated when building the kernel itself?  Can I copy this from /usr/
src/sys after doing a cvsup of the src tree?

 Hi,

 I am trying to mount linprocfs (required as part of a Java installation).

 I put the following in my /etc/fstab:
   linproc  /compat/linux/proc   linprocfs   rw,noauto0 0

I know this is what the man page says; but I find my /etc/fstab actually
uses the line:
linprocfs  /compat/linux/proc   linprocfs   rw,noauto0 0

which works for me.



 Then I did:
   # kldload linprocfs
   # mount linproc


 and I get:

 Any idea what could be going wrong?

This is typically because the code was written non-portably and
doesn't include the headers that are required by UNIX standards
(i.e. it only runs on Linux).  Fixing this usually isn't too
difficult..you just need to figure out what header is missing and add
it back.

Two sound cards

Hello All,

I have two sound cards and FreeBSD 5.0
cat  /dev/sndstat

FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
Installed devices:
pcm0: AudioPCI ES1373-8 at io 0xd000 irq 11 (1p/1r/0v channels duplex default)
pcm1: VIA VT8235 at io 0xe400 irq 10 (1p/1r/0v channels duplex)

And wants to make /dev/dsp point to pcm1 by default instead of pcm0.
How to do this? Or where to read about this..? I take a look at man

RE: problems with LPD

2003-10-31 Thread MPAREDES

Hi Garance.

Thanks for your answer, I had tried with the IP only and
the name only in the /etc/hosts.lpd and the problem persist,
but when I add the entry in /etc/hosts the printings go fine
no matter what I had in /etc/hosts.lpd (the name or the IP),
so I can assure you that the problem is because LPD don't
resolve the IP to a name via DNS.

From windows I resolve the IP to as_nte.intranet.telmex.com

C:\ping -a -n 1 10.192.2.134

Haciendo ping a as_nte.intranet.telmex.com [10.192.2.134] con 32 bytes de datos:

Respuesta desde 10.192.2.134: bytes=32 tiempo=48ms TDV=58

Estadísticas de ping para 10.192.2.134:
Paquetes: enviados = 4, Recibidos = 4, perdidos = 0 (0% loss),
Tiempos aproximados de recorrido redondo en milisegundos:
mínimo = 37ms, máximo =  48ms, promedio =  40ms

I think that the solution to my dilemma, is modify the source
code of LPD.

But before this I like to try the netgroup option, where can
I begging to read?.

You should only need the real hostname in /etc/hosts.lpd.
You do not need to list the real IP address in addition
to the hostname.

To get the mapping between hosts and IP addresses to work,
you would have to put an entry in /etc/hosts:

10.192.2.134as_nte.intranet.telmex.com

and then put just the line:

as_nte.intranet.telmex.com

in /etc/hosts.lpd

Also, I like to enable the printers (all) in this server
to be accessible to any one in the net 10.

I saw your earlier question on this, and I believe the answer
is that there isn't any good way to do this.  You might be
able to set something up with a netgroup, although that is
not documented very well.

Verifying integrity of Backup Tapes

2003-10-31 Thread Rick Duvall
I have some backup tapes that I have been using each once per week for about
8 months.  I am getting errors when running amverify on a couple of them.
To be sure that my tapes are still good and not just the system giving me
fits, it would be nice if I could run a program that would write bits to the
tape in question and try to read them back, telling me which blocks on the
tape are bad.  Is there such a tool that does this?  I guess it would be
kind of like a scandisk is to a DOS Floppy as what I am talking about is to
a Unix Tape.

Re: Verifying integrity of Backup Tapes

2003-10-31 Thread Technical Director

Rick,

I'm not to sure of a best method for checking the tapes, I might tar'ing a
massive file to the tape and then back to see if it is working.
 
Unfortunately during the use of your backup schema the tapes have to
degrade. If it's a DLT400 tape or even a DDS# series I can see the need to
hang on to them for some time to insure the cost of the media was
repaid. Might it be best though to question the integrity of using a media
that may have reached it's usable lifespan?

As well depending on your method of backup, say full, 1/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8,
etc. one tape that has a problem with the data on it will throw the entire
sequence of backups. And if you have full backups, skipping the
incremental, you might save yourself the hassle of a wrecked sequence of
incrementals, yet the entire concept of backup is lost with bad media.

I'm just trying to give you some ideas on how to go from here, not trying
to critisize you on something you probably are already thinking.

R.

question on linux-base installs

2003-10-31 Thread Michael Perry
HI all-

I recently did my first make buildworld make installworld and it went
very well.  The howto stuff is very handy :).  My question though
probably has two parts or so so I'll try to elaborate them a bit.  I
have been using the linux-mozilla 1.4 port a lot so I can take advantage
of the plugins.  The one thing I have found with linux-base 8 is that
the java plugins don't work and have a common error which I have seen
with glibc or other problems.  Can one install two different linux-base
versions?  I would like to go to linux-base 6 so I can get the java
plugin working in linux-mozilla.  I don't see a java version which works
with linux-base 8 and will work as a plugin.  Any issues with having two
versions of linux base installed or should I just deinstall the version
8 and install the linux base 6 stuff?

Secondly, I managed to get apm and sound working on the same little dell
laptop.  Its a dell latitude ls.  But suspending seems problemmatic if
the system sits too long.  Often its locked down completely and requires
a reboot.  Running the appropriate apm command seems to indicate that it
should do resume. I think perhaps its an issue with the laptop's apm
implementation in the bios since a few things don't work on it.  Like it
never tells me how much time is left.  On my newer dell Inspiron I4100
running Debian linux, apm is pretty good.

Thanks for all the great answers to the questions I read while lurking
here :)

Possible CDROM problems with install

2003-10-31 Thread Mike Leman
I am trying to install Freebsd 4.8 on a computer and having a great deal 
of problems.   The first time I tried the install stopped when the doc 
install was at 100% and would not go on.  I rebooted and it would boot, 
but I didn't have much.  I tried booting from the CD to finish the 
install, but that didn't work.  I would get a screen screen dump that 
just kept scrolling. 

Since I'm putting this on a second hard drive, I wiped everything off 
the drive and started over.  When it was loading the BIN to first 
directory, I noticed I was getting a lot of /stand/cpio: invalid 
header: checksum error messages.  Then on the window with progress bar, 
I got a message  write failure on transfer.  I acknowledged the error 
and received a message asking to try again yes/no.  After retrying and 
failing a number of times, I selected no and the docs installed OK.  
After this every part of the install had the write failure until I 
stopped the install.   On monitoring side, there were invalid header 
errors and other errors also.

In Greg Lehey's book The Complete FREEBSD, he notes can be problems 
with ATAPI CD-ROMs.  I have a Acer 36X CDROM that reports ATAPI 36X 
MAXIMUM when the computer boots.  Could there be problem with the CDROM 
drive?  Is there something I do for this?  Or do I have a bad install 
CD?  I just purchased the intall CDs.  Also the Hard drive in fairly 
new.  I bought it and installed six months ago, but have not used till now.

Any help you can give will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Garance.

Thanks for your answer, ...


I think that the solution to my dilemma, is modify
the source code of LPD.
But before this I like to try the netgroup option,
where can I begin to read?
Well, you can check:
  man hosts.lpd
which will tell you almost nothing.  Now it happens that
the hosts.lpd is actually processed by the same code that
handles hosts.equiv, although that is not documented.  So,
it happens to be true that:
  man hosts.equiv
will tell you some additional hints as to what is available.
However, you will notice that the man page for hosts.equiv
does little more than point you to the source code.  So,
that is not very helpful either.
There is also:
  man netgroup
which will tell you the format of the /etc/netgroup file.  I
should mention that I have never actually used netgroups, so
I am not sure that they will help you in this case.
I have skimmed through all of the above, and my guess is that
your original idea is probably the easiest one to do.  It
should be easier to change the source code in lpr/lpd/lpd.c
to make it behave the way you want it to behave.  Now that
I have read more about netgroups, I expect that they are not
very useful for what you really want to do.

Re: vinum on atapi raid

2003-10-31 Thread Jonas Sonntag
hi again

just for the record: this really seems to be an issue with the ar 
device. i took one of the drives off from the promise controller (ar), 
attached it to the onboard controller (ad) and everything works fine.
i'm cc'ing to freebsd-hackers because of this post: 
http://www.geocrawler.com/mail/msg.php3?msg_id=6949487list=159  (see 
below).

now, another question: looking at dmesg i found that ar2 is also given 
the device name ad7 (don't be confused by my previous post, the order of 
the disks changed):
ar2: 117246MB ATA RAID0 array [14946/255/63] status: READY subdisks:
0 READY ad7: 117246MB Maxtor 6Y120L0 [238216/16/63] at ata3-slave UDMA100

so i though i might use ad7 instead of ar2 but trying to use /dev/ad7 
with disklabel gives me 'Device is busy' error.
please note that this is in fact no raid configuration. the disks just 
appear as ar because they are attached to the promise controller.

hum... again, any hints how i could build a concatenated vinum volume 
from the single ar drives ?

thanks and br,

The data for partition 1 is:

now i seem to be missing something here.. when i do
vinum create -f /etc/vinum.conf
what i get is:

  1: drive a device /dev/ar1h
** 1 Can't initialize drive a: Operation not supported by device
  2: drive b device /dev/ar2h
** 2 Can't initialize drive b: Operation not supported by device
0 drives:
1 volumes:
V stuff State: down Plexes:   1 Size:
191 GB

1 plexes:
P stuff.p0C State: faulty   Subdisks: 2 Size:
191 GB

2 subdisks:
S stuff.p0.s0   State: crashed  PO:0  B Size:
114 GB
S stuff.p0.s1   State: crashed  PO:  114 GB Size: 
76 GB

messages says:
/kernel: vinum: stuff.p0.s0 is crashed
/kernel: vinum: stuff.p0 is faulty
/kernel: vinum: stuff.p0.s1 is crashed
i have 'obliterated' the volume, i have remade the devices i allways 
end up with Operation not supported by device.

something similar happens when i'm using the concat command to vinum:
vinum - concat -v /dev/ar1h /dev/ar2h
volume vinum0
 plex name vinum0.p0 org concat
drive vinumdrive0 device /dev/ar1h
Can't create drive vinumdrive0, device /dev/ar1h: Can't initialize 
drive vinumdrive0

i have come across this post: 
http://www.geocrawler.com/mail/msg.php3?msg_id=6949487list=159
could that be the case with /dev/ar, too? i'm on 4.8-stable.

any hints how to go on would be great. please cc me, as i'm not on the 
list.

thanks and br
jonas
